Globe Trekker's Adela frolics in the vibrant streets of Madrid.

Madrid, the capital of Spain is undergoing something of a renaissance - new modern building works are going up all over the city, the arts are flourishing, it's home to the biggest Gay Pride in Europe, and for travellers Madrid is becoming known as the all night party capital. It's a great time to visit! Join Adela on GLOBE TREKKER: Madrid City Guide airing Thursday, February 17 at 9 p.m. on WXXI Create (cable 433/DT21.3).

Adela Ucar Innerarity visits exciting Madrid, taking in the artwork at the Prado, “El Rastro,” the city’s famous flea market, Spanish Civil War landmarks and samples the fabulous cuisine. She also takes excursions to nearby El Escorial, the Roman aqueducts of Segovia and the charming hillside town of Toledo.

GLOBE TREKKER transports viewers to unforgettable destinations through its stunning photography, rhythmic indigenous music and spirit of adventure.
